Brake noise?

While riding I can hear a noise from the front end. Before I could tell it was a slight rubbing from the brake pads... now it's gotten louder and more of a high pitch noise which seems louder when the brakes are applied.

I let my b/f ride the bike to see if he could hear it and once he came back by and was breaking I could hear it sounded like crap.

Just put new EBC pads on the front a few months ago.. maybe jan/feb time.

'09 CBR600RR
'05 Tacoma Sport

when you changed pads, did you do any front caliper service such as disassembly, cleaning, and seal refreshing?
